Sanja Ivekovic Artist Talk

Over the last four decades, Sanja Ivekovic has developed a pioneering practice that tackles society’s issues of female identity, the politics of power, consumerism and the hypocrisy inherent in society’s collective memory. In the 1970’s Ivekovic, alongside a generation of Yugoslavian artists, questioned the role of art in society. They broke away from galleries and started to use performances and cheap, accessible materials.
